ADATA Value-Driven S102 Pro Effortless Upgrade 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Gray) Model AS102P-8G-RGY
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Much, much faster than my decrepit USB 2.0 sticks.

Durable aluminum shell.

Got it on sale.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I honestly don't use USB drives very often and generally am not moving large amounts of data when I do use them. So this 8GB stick does the job nicely. Plus the up and down speeds are so much faster than that of my older 2.0 sticks.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 - 3 PCs
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Borderline Bait and Switch Tactics 08/24/2013

This review is from: Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 - 3 PCs

Pros: Software works as it's supposed to.

I don't use this software on my own computer, but installed in on the kids' computer in the hopes that I would no longer have to reformat due to the viruses and malware they always seem to pick up. In this regard the software has worked well. Also, I like the fact that I can go in a set pretty strict limitations on access and usage.

Cons: Kaspersky along with numerous other AV companies are notorious for this tactic. You purchase the initial product on sale or at a reduced price.

Then renewal time rolls around and that's where they (try to) get you.

Other Thoughts: Time to look into other options. I use Security Essentials on my personal computer and have had no issues with it at all. But then I am not all over the internet like the kids are. Still, I think it's time to dig deeper in to what Security Essentials is fully capable of.

Sorry Kaspersky, I like the product, but I'm tired massively over inflated software pricing.

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Blue LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Inexpensive
- Decent airflow
- Relatively low noise to CFM ratio

Cons: - Sleeve bearings.

Only consider this a con if you plan to use the fan in a horizontal location.

These fans and others that use sleeve bearing apparently do not like to be placed in a horizontal position. I've been using 3 of these fans as a top exhaust in my case. Which means that the fans are hanging downward on the bearing shaft. I've had 2 start to vibrate and chatter (so far), bad enough that it starts to resonate throughout the top of the case. You could actually put your hand over the fan and feel the vibrations.

Research in to the problem indicated that this is a typical problem for fans that use sleeve bearings.

Ironically enough, as I type this, the fans are being quiet. Go figure

Other Thoughts: These fans have been (mostly) trouble free when being used as a front intake or rear exhaust.

I've since purchased 6 of these. So we're now looking at a 50% failure rate. I'm still not getting worked up over this, especially considering that the fans were over a year old when I relocated them to the top of my new case.
